About Us

Balloon America offers exhilarating hot air balloon rides in Tucson, Arizona. We have many exclusive advantages over amateur operators. During our 34 years in business, we have flown more than 150,000 passengers in complete comfort and security. That's more than 20 times the number of people that our competitors have flown combined.

All other balloon flights depart from remote locations in the middle of Avra Valley over the freeway or boring industrial farmlands. We're the only company with a dedicated balloon port at La Mariposa Resort on Tucson's east side. We have secure parking, bathrooms, plus indoor and outdoor catering for groups of up to 1000 people.

Since 1983, Balloon America has been Tucson's oldest, largest, and most experienced tour company. Our founder was a Fortune 100 corporate executive.  After many years in this role, he decided to forge a new career in the balloon tour business. Today, we place our sole focus on delivering safe and luxurious hot air balloon rides.
